The Backstage's 2024 season is sponsored in part by Jim Bryan & Dee Johnson.

Get off the davenport and join Molly Otis, Ed Willett and the ‘Blue Velvets’ featuring Danielle Diamond, Vince Osborn, Tom Mitchell, and special guest Todd Eckart for a retro-themed evening of music, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts. The scene is a '60s nightclub with a Motown vibe. Dress for cocktails, tease your hair, and plan on dancing to tunes like "I've Got You Babe," "Midnight Train to Georgia," "A Hard Day's Night," "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay," and many more.

About Todd Eckart
Todd Eckart is a consummate entertainer who charms his audience unlike no other in a way that transports you back to a time of a bygone era. His stylings are modeled after the greatest singers of our time, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin,& Elvis Presley. Those names alone helped define vintage Las Vegas as we know it, and Todd recreates that today in his live performances. Uniquely gifted and always in tune with his audience, Todd defines the sense of classiness and dignity to the men that created that golden age of music. He may have been born in the wrong era, and you certainly know it, by just one listen. Click here to learn more about Todd.
